The Mom Fairy Who?

Happy Monday:

It’s finally time for me to properly introduce myself –

20140316-DSC02087The name’s Glendaly Corona & I am the Mom Fairy. [For those of you who don’t know, La Mama Hada is The Mom Fairy in Spanish.]

I’m currently 22 years old, a stay-at-home mom, student & fashion lover. 22 year old mom?! You read that correctly. I am a proud mother to a beautiful 10-month old baby girl. I never imagined myself as a young mom, but I am one of those people who believe that things happen for a reason.

The thought of becoming a young mom scared me beyond belief – all of the bad connotations that come along with that title is daunting. However, I can honestly say that becoming a young momma helped me get my life together. My life made complete sense the moment I held baby Kaelynn in my arms in the delivery room.

It amazes me everyday seeing & experiencing all of the good changes that has happened in my life since becoming a young momma. I’ve finally, and I am going to ‘yell’ this: FINALLY FOUND MYSELF. FOUND SELF LOVE. & IT FEELS GREAT. I was lost & confused before I got pregnant. I didn’t have any drive, any dedication or commitment to almost every aspect of my life. But my daughter changed that. She gave me all of the commitment & dedication I needed to become successful in every aspect of my life. I know people’s level of success varies, but being in my life situation as it is – I feel beyond successful. MY POINT: Don’t ever let society bring you down for being a young mom. Take the challenge, embrace it & own it.

I am currently living in Brooklyn, NY; & am a proud native. There’s no place like New York City, but there are so many places that don’t get highlighted like the famous Time Square, or Dumbo.

I grew up in the projects in East New York, where gang violence happens on the regular, you find piss all over the elevator floor & the stench of drugs seeps through your windows & doors. It wasn’t the best living conditions, but I managed to survive and found my way into Bushwick; which is no longer Bushwick, thanks to gentrification.

At the moment, I’m kind of stuck on where to go next. SO here’s a list of random facts about me:

My mother is Puerto Rican & my father is Mexican.
Tacos are my favorite food.
I am a Theatre Major at my Uni & only have a year left.
I am not religious.
However, I am very spiritual. I am one with the stars.
Black is my favorite color. Green comes after.
May 13th is my birthday.
My 1st birthday was Friday the 13th. When I found this out, I swore my life made complete sense to me.

I’m not sure what else to say – I really do suck at talking about myself. If you have any questions, please, feel free to ask! I don’t bite.

Thank you for taking your time & checking out my blog, I will forever be grateful.

Stay smiling.
